Alison recalled a time when her dad landed back in Birmingham and showed up at her mum Maria’s home with a surprise.
Speaking to The Mirror, she said: “One day, he came straight to our house from the airport. ‘See these boots?’ he said, grinning down at his feet. ‘These are the most expensive pair of snakeskin boots in the world’.
“‘Why are they so expensive?’ my mum asked. He bent down, unzipped a boot and a load of ganja fell out.”
Despite his line of work, Alison said that her dad was a complete “charmer”.
